The Importance of Grading
Gradings are an important aspect of any martial arts training. They indicate the student’s proficiency in that art, and allow further learning to take place. They are the tool used to determine taekwondo belt advancement.
A grading assesses one’s technical ability, knowledge, indomitable spirit and physical conditioning. The complexity of tasks increases in accordance with rank advancement.
The different coloured belts indicate the student’s current level of achievement.
It is the responsibility of the student to achieve a high level of competence in all areas of grading requirements to the best of their ability. Students are tested on overall performance in each area, to assess their worthiness of rank promotion.
All Black Belts are expected to have developed proficiency and thorough understanding of all colour belt grading requirements, as well as their own requirements.
